Create traditional dishes and learn incredible cultural stories with Chef Gustavo.

In this hands-on cooking class, you'll learn all about the intricate food from four South American nations. Chef Gustavo will teach you time-honored cooking techniques along the way, as you handcraft classic recipes.

Begin by preparing fresh Peruvian ceviche followed by a lemony quinoa salad filled with the flavors of Bolivia. Then, you'll taste the savory flavors of Argentina with beef empanadas and finish up with classic Venezuelan arepas filled with chicken, arugula and avocado. As you cook, Chef Gustavo will teach you about the fascinating history and culture behind each bite.

It ended up being just my partner and I in this class. Very relaxing and informative experience with Chef Gustavo, in his home kitchen. Class flowed effortlessly between stories/instructions/advice, helping prepare ingredients, Q&As, and eating each part of the meal. I highly recommend!
